Celebrity Sightings at the Cheltenham Festival – Who Is Expected This Year

As such, it manages to attract a lot of visitors from all around the globe, especially from the UK and Ireland. Among them are of course many celebrities that are into this type of sport.

However, over the years we are seeing more and more famous people who don’t follow horse racing at all. Regardless, in this article, we will reveal the top celebrities that we can find at the Cheltenham Festival this year.

The Royal Family

Several members of the Royal Family are almost always present on at least one of the horse racing days. Last year, Princess Royal’s daughter, Zara Tindall, and her husband Mike Tindall appeared at the Cheltenham Festival.

At the same time, we also saw Camilla’s appearance at the Festival for the first time as Queen Consort. In 2015, Princess Anne opened the stand named in her honour, as well as the Queen Consort. She is also an Honorary Member of the Jockey Club and often goes to horse racing events.

It’s still uncertain which Royal Family member will appear on the stands of this year’s edition of the Cheltenham Festival. But, one thing is certain, they all love spending a day at the horse races.

The Celebrities That Will Attend at the Cheltenham Festival

Apart from the Royal Family members, there will be numerous other celebrities at the Cheltenham Festival. Many of these famous personalities are interested in horse racing events, while some of them are there just for the experience.

There are also certain celebrities who like to spend some money wagering on horse races. This is actually a very common activity at this Festival. If you are interested in horse racing betting then you can also check out the Cheltenham tips on Tuesday.

Mary Berry

As for the actual celebrities that will visit the Festival, we are currently aware of five of them. First, we have the 88-year-old baker and TV presenter, Mary Berry.

She is a well-known horse racing fan who regularly appears on these types of events. Her last appearance at the Cheltenham Festival was back in 2019 during the Ladies Day.

Ferne McCann

Next is Ferne McCann, a well-known TV presenter and personality. In the past, she was a cast member of the ITVBereality series The Only Way Is Essex. She even participated in the reality show I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!

McCann isn’t a big horse racing fan, as we haven’t seen here before at the racing courts. However, as we noted, the Cheltenham Festival attracts many people, even those who are just starting out with this sport.

Vogue Williams

Another celebrity who will appear at the Cheltenham Festival is Irish media presenter, podcaster, and model Vogue Williams. But, she won’t only visit the horse racing event but also perform at one of the after-parties.

Williams will have its own DJ set after the Style Wednesday comes to an end. She will entertain the visitors at The Centaur venue. It’s worth mentioning that Vogue Williams appeared at the Cheltenham Festivals in 2016, 2019, and 2020.  This shows how much she admires this horse racing event.

Curtis Pritchard

The dancer and star from the reality show Love Island, Curtis Pritchard, will also appear at the Cheltenham Festival. This famous dancer and choreographer participated in the Irish version of Dancing with the Stars.

Visitors saw Pritchard at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival on day four. He was also present at last year’s edition of the Festival, which shows his affection for this event.

Chloe Kelly

Last but not least, we have Chloe Kelly, the famous football player and Lioness. The general public in the UK knows her from her incredible winning goal in the 2022 Women’s Euro Final. On a club level, Kelly plays for Manchester City but had previously played for Arsenal and Everton.

This will be her first time attending the Cheltenham Festival andpossibly the first ever big horse racing event. It’s very likely Kelly to appear at the Festival with their long-term boyfriend and fiance Scott Moore.
